Yorkshire – aka God’s Own County – has more than its fair share of impressive landscapes and picturesque towns. Historic York itself is of course one of the county’s big draws, offering a formidable variety of characterful venues for corporate events. If it’s size and space you’re after, take a look at the York Barbican, which has room for 1,400 delegates theatre style. For something more intimate, there’s the Grade 1-listed Bar Convent in central York. As the official conference bureau for the city, VisitYork4Meetings can advise bookers on the best venues to match their needs, while negotiating rates on their behalf. They’ll even help set up accommodation for guests. Teambuilding events and away days are another strong point, with options ranging from horse racing at York Racecourse (which has its own list of events facilities and hospitality options) to museum trips, off-road driving and brewery tours.
This year’s ‘York Minster to Westminster’ showcase will take place on 5 March. Held at the Houses of Parliament and The QEII Conference Centre, the event will bring together 20 York venues and suppliers with event bookers.
